Have you ever tasted a persimmon?

We used to live in California and it was there that I was introduced to the amazing persimmon. This amazingly scrumptious and very sweet fruit can be so bitter when unripe. It goes from the bitterest of bitter to the sweetest of sweets.

There are a wide variety of types of persimmon plants so just about anyone from any state can grown them. Check out to buy Persimmon trees for your yard.

A Great Money Making Idea!

If you have room for several plants, consider a small orchard with your sights on a road side stand when the fruit is in season. A great money making idea for these times when we're all looking for ways to earn some extra money.

Love is in the air

Christmas is almost here

Well, I got the last of my gifts purchased today. Now all I have to do is get those last things wrapped and under the tree and I'll be ready for the big day.

Today our minister was talking about how Christmas is all about us. I must say that I did a double take when I heard that. I have always thought in terms of Christmas being about Christ and celebrating His birth. Well, pastor said that is of course so too, but that if we think about it, Jesus is all about God's love for us. It was His love for is that caused Him to send Jesus to earth.

Well, once he explained himself, I understood where he was coming from. However, Christmas for me will always be a time of praising God for Jesus, and praising Jesus for dying on the cross for us. It's a time for my heart to continually thank Him for his love.

I praise His holy name! Amen.

Looking for a lawyer!

My sister just moved to Seattle and wouldn't you know it. Her husband was injured the first day of work at his new job. She was so upset, needless to say. She called me to talk. I told her not to worry and to let me see what I could find in the way of Seattle injury lawyer. I spend a lot of time doing research on the Internet and was sure I could help her out.

Well, I came across, did some checking and found that they were just what she needed. I called her right back and so within a couple of hours she had things under control.

I was delighted that I was able to help my dear sister out. I'm sure once they get past this bump in the road the rest of their time in Seattle will be just fine. They're going to come to spend the holidays with us too. I can't wait to hear all about that law firm.

My grandchildren's favorite gift!

The one thing that all of my grandchildren, no matter what their age or gender want is the PS3. Not only do they want the game system, but they want all of the accessories and a list of games as long as my arm.

This system seems to have that certain something that appeals to everyone. Even our son who is in his late 40s love it. He bought his family one and is getting games for everyone for the holidays.

The Holiday Blues

Just what is it about this time of year that can make us feel blue instead of joyful the way it should? In my humble opinion, the very fact that we feel that we SHOULD feel joyful sets us up to feel just the opposite. Don't you think?

For me, the answer to this phenomenon is to get busy and help someone in need. Reaching out to another is the fastest way to shake the blues that I know of. It's also the most useful. The second cure is to go for a brisk walk. God made our bodies with built in cures for what ails us, and walking revs up just the right hormones to give us the lift we need when we're down.

I hope this helps you if you're feeling blue. =)

Help losing weight

Who among us isn't looking for help in this area? It's a known fact that the number one New Year's Resolution is to lose weight. This year, I will be one of the many making this resolution.

I have been reading and hearing a lot about the weight loss aid, Leptovox. When I read the list of ingredients and how they help our bodies shed those extra pounds, I was impressed. It contains green tea and acia berry just to name a couple ingredients.

I intend to order Leptovox and give it a try. When I do, I'll blog on the results of my use. Before I take it, however, you can be sure I will check with my doctor. I urge you to do the same always when considering using an over the counter medication. That just makes sense.

Food for thought

Most of us will join a large majority of our fellow Americans at the first of the year and begin a diet to lose the weight we are gaining from eating all of the goodies that are everywhere during the holiday season. When you do, I'd like to suggest a great site to help you when you decide to try the help of diet pills.

Not only does give you a list of the top diet aids, but also tells you what's in them and how they stand price wise. I really like sites that help inform us about what we're buying.

As always, I take any aids and supplements with me to my doctor so she can check them out and tell me if it's ok to use it. That just makes good sense to me and I urge you to do the same.

Happy Holidays.

Protecting our largest investment

Those of us who own our homes are very aware of the amount of money that is tied up in this one investment. That being the case, it's a no-brainer to realize that we must not skimp on home insurance.

It's important to yearly take a good look at what you're spending and check to see if you may be paying more than you have to for that protection. With sites like this, it's more convenient than ever to compare prices and even save some money on your home insurance.

I consider yearly reviewing insurance coverage truly a buzzworthy thing.
